In the cool highlands of Sri Lanka, on top the highest vantage point a few minutes drive away from Nuwara Eliya town, is a place that takes you back in time: Oliphant Boutique Villa. Surrounded by lush tea estates, beautifully kept gardens, and colourful flower beds it is a colonial mansion turned planter’s bungalow turned boutique hotel.
Enjoy spacious bedrooms in colonial style with four-poster beds, fireplaces to keep you warm, and large windows that look out to the sprawling gardens beyond. Each room also has a tea station so guests can enjoy a refreshing cup of locally grown tea from the surrounding estate.
There are plenty of comfy sofas to snuggle up with a book under a blanket, and the property offers a variety of dining experiences: breakfast in bed, afternoon tea on the lawn or dinner by a warm fire. Guests can choose from a range of continental and traditional dishes via the à la carte or set menu.
